Recycle Electronics and Metal at McKendree on April 20

(LEBANON, Ill., March 27, 2017) - The McKendree University Green Team will sponsor an electronics recycling event on Thursday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Look for the recycling truck parked in the lot across Summerfield St. from the softball field, on the northeast side of the campus.

Anything with a plug will be accepted, as well as all computer parts, and metal items such as lawnmowers, motors and metal office furniture.

A $10 fee will be charged for TVs that are not flat screen and for CRT computer monitors. A $20 fee will be charged for TVs up to 24 inches and a $30 fee for larger or projection TVs. Fees cover transportation costs because the TVs must be shipped for recycling.
